You may be counting the days till Diwali. Till the festivities begin. Till diyas and rangoli brighten your house. And you spend evenings with friends and family lighting crackers.
While you do so, we ask you to spare a thought for the less fortunate.
For those who live all their lives in darkness. And have no idea when they’ll ever see light.
This Diwali help us do something special for children studying at our support centers and bring a smile on their faces.
More than 300 children are studying at our Gyaan Centres who come from the less privileged background.
We assure you that by helping the less fortunate ones you’ll feel more special.
Celebrate Diwali this year by brightening a life.  There’s no better gift than this.

About the Organisation:
Aahvan Ek Pehal, abbreviated as AEP, was started in the year 2014 with the objective to empower women and create a better future for the children. We pay special regard to those who are differently-abled and strive to transform their inability into a distinctive ability. Since we are not funded by any organ of the government, we raise funds on our own through our active members and volunteers.

We believe in the saying that "Education is the chief defence of nations" and thus hold that a significant change in the society can be brought only by providing at least a minimum level of quality education with good opportunities.

Our Projects:

Gyaan: Education is one of the most important drivers of India’s social and economic development. We at AEP believe that education is the key to overcoming poverty in a single generation. And the same is fundamental in creating a future with human security, community development and progress of the nation. Project Gyaan focuses on imparting value based education to the underprivileged with focus on girl child education. We create an academic support classroom in their vicinity and provide them with quality education.

Unnati: Women have come at par with men, showing outstanding performance in all areas of work. Yet there are many places in India where they still face discrimination and discouragement to learn, to educate or to even work. Aahvan Ek Pehal provides education and skill development training to women from the economically challenged background. It is our aim to educate women and make them aware of their rights so that they can have a standing in the society. Project Unnati focuses to build a bridge between women and opportunity by creating opportunities them.

Sometimes the solution of a problem is right there in front of us, but we fail to see it due to lack of awareness. At Aahvan Ek Pehal, we realise the importance of this issue and strive to spread awareness in the society. We run campaigns on various issues like child rights, sanitation and various safety measures during accidents and epidemics. The main motive of these campaigns is to prepare people for such perils and teach them ways to tackle it. Special focus is also given to sanitation and hygiene as these are the major factors that can help curb diseases.

Srajan: Differently abled person need our love and compassion, not our pity. We at Aahvan believe that if proper care is given, focus is laid on their strength and not weaknesses, the differently abled can excel in life. So we host workshops which are designed specifically for these kids keeping in mind their cognitive thinking pattern. We also run awareness campaigns on various disabilities. We create fun and interactive sessions, outdoor sport activities, keeping in mind their abilities. We also conduct activities for the visually impaired.

We are raising funds to make this Diwali special for children studying at our  Gyaan Centres. More than 300 children are enrolled with us. We request you to donate generously and make this Diwali a memorable one for our children.
